'Slower progress' in Theresa May's talks with DUP

Сенат США готов нанести новый удар по РФ

Сенат США готов нанести новый удар по РФ

The talks with the DUP follow her apology to Conservative rank-and-file lawmakers in a meeting for the party's poor election result.

Having helped deliver a number of major events to Northern Ireland, such as the Giro d'Italia and golf's Open Championship, the DUP may ask for support hosting other high-profile worldwide show-pieces.

British Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives have reached a "broad agreement" with the ultra-conservative Democratic Unionist Party to prop up her minority government, a source told AFP on Thursday after her election fiasco.

It is thought Mrs Foster, despite being a Brexit supporter, could seek assurances from Mrs May that she will pursue a softer exit from the European Union, given Northern Ireland's 56% Remain vote and the DUP's desire not to see a return to a hard border with Ireland.

In London, the Tories and the DUP are trying to agree a so-called "confidence and supply" arrangement, which would see the Northern Irish party back the Government to get key votes through such as on its Budget.

An initial round of talks between May and DUP leader Arlene Foster ended with no agreement on Tuesday, although both sides said they were hopeful, with talks to resume Wednesday.

North Korea claims American college student released from detainment for "humanitarian reasons"
How harsh is prison in North Korea? He was medically evacuated from the country and arrived in Cincinnati late Tuesday. Spokeswoman Heather Nauert (NOW'-ert) says the US hopes the other Americans will be able to return home soon.

After days of political turmoil sparked by her botched gamble on a snap election, May's Conservative Party resumed talks with a small Northern Irish Protestant party on securing the support of its 10 members of parliament to pass legislation.

It comes after Mrs May told Tory MPs: "I'm the person who got us into this mess and I'm the one who will get us out of it".

Any final Brexit arrangement will be put to Parliament and both Labour and the Scottish Nationalists will use every opportunity to push their agenda for a close trading relationship with the European Union and a deal which protects jobs and workers' rights. The Evening Standard, edited by ex-Treasury chief George Osborne, reported that Cabinet ministers have initiated talks with Labour lawmakers to come up with a "softer", less hard-line divorce from the EU.

A poll released last summer has shown 70% of people in Northern Ireland support same-sex marriage.

No 10 has refused to confirm the further delay - and the Prime Minister refused to answer questions about the negotiations as she left Downing Street.

Even the idea of an alliance is complicated, however.

Fed Raised Interest Rates, Dow Hit Record Highs on June 14

The 1998 Good Friday Agreement commits the United Kingdom and Irish Governments to demonstrate "rigorous impartiality" in their dealings with the different political traditions in Northern Ireland.

"I will be making it very clear that any deal between the Tories and the DUP can not be allowed to undermine the Good Friday and subsequent agreements", she said.

"After the referendum past year, I called for the government to approach this in a cross-party way to get the best deal".

"If that's not possible, the Labour Party stands ready to offer strong and stable leadership in the national interest".

Demanding a swift start to Brexit negotiations under Article 50 of the European Union treaties, the former Belgian prime minister compared Britain's position to the heroine of Lewis Carroll's Alice In Wonderland, who found herself in a room with many doors and no idea what lay behind them.

"My preoccupation is that time is passing - it's passing quicker than anyone believes - because the subjects we need to deal with are extraordinarily complex from a technical, judicial and financial point of view".

USGA says blimp crash at Open came in open field
The Federal Aviation and Administration and National Transportation Safety Board have been called to investigate the crash. Thursday afternoon, a blimp caught fire and crashed approximately a half-mile from the US Open into an open field.

"But, let us be clear and organised and once the negotiations have started we should be well aware that it'll be more hard to move backwards", he noted.
